Secret Santas need some help granting wishes

By Tami Althoff Published: November 12, 2008

/> That isn’t possible without the help of the community.

Children have prepared their wish lists, and they are available to those willing to help.

Lists are available in three age groups — 0 to 4, 5 to 11 and 12 to 18.

Individuals or groups can take a list for one child (or a set of siblings) and buy the items on those lists. Because of confidentiality, only the first name, age and sex of the child will be given.

Those who don’t want to shop can donate money for gifts.

The average amount spent on each child ranges from $50 to $100, with less being spent on younger children and more being spent on older children.

On Dec. 16, volunteer shoppers will buy remaining items on the lists using money donated from members of the community.

On Dec. 17, all the gifts will be displayed at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds for the foster families to pick up.

Everyone can stop by to see the display from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dec. 17 to see the extent of its generosity.

Anyone willing to shop, donate money or volunteer should call 321-5999.
